Riddles

This week in Literacy the children have been writing riddles about nocturnal animals. Read the clues and see if you can work out which animal is being described.

I am furry, soft and sneaky.
I live in a den.
For my tea I eat hedgehogs, rabbits and rubbish from bins.
I prowl in the night to search for food.
Also I have a snout so I can smell 50 times better than people.
I talk to my friends by barking and making strange eerie sounds.
What am I?
By Jaya

I eat mice by swooping down and catching them with my sharp talons.
I’m a fluffy animal with chocolate coloured feathers.
My beak is as sharp as a hedgehog’s spikes.
I swiftly fly in the dark, dark night.
What am I?
By Weronika

Prowling cautiously I sneak up on my prey.
I am as orange as a tangerine and my tail is bushy.
Sometimes I eat juicy rabbits.
What am I?
By Leonard-Spencer

I have spikes that are as sharp as a bed of needles.
I have a snout that helps me to smell my food.
My face is as soft as a pillow but keep away from my spikes!
When I am scared I turn into a ball so that when animals try to eat me they get hurt.
I am as brown as a tree trunk.
What am I?
By Adam

Owls!

This week we have been learning about owls. We have researched the life cycle of an owl and learnt some fascinating facts.

Did you know that an owl’s feathers are not waterproof so they cannot hunt in the rain? Dainus

Did you know that owls have one ear higher than the other? Jannah

Did you know that they have long legs and sharp claws to help them catch their prey? Priya

We also made owls using paper plates. We used our creativity power and selected the resources we needed. What do you think of our owls?

and finally have teeth as

sharp as a golden dagger…….Hasnain.
